Abstract
The operation of an optical observatory with commands and instructions passed from the laboratory computer to the observatory computer via telecommunications has enabled us to routinely operate unattended at a remote site three sophisticated optical instruments. We report on the scientific and instrumental considerations, software development, and hardware decisions that made this achievement possible.
